Mass General Brigham (formerly Harvard Partners Consortium) Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology

Applications Due: December 1, 2023

The Mass General Brigham (MGB) Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology (formerly known as the Harvard Partners Consortium in Clinical Neuropsychology) seeks candidates for a two-year fellowship in neuropsychology to begin on September 1, 2024. The joint Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Fellowship is a program of Harvard Medical School. Two fellowship slots are available.

The fellowship program is designed to provide excellent clinical training in adult or lifespan neuropsychology. Experiences and didactics conform to Houston Conference/Division 40 training requirements so that fellows will be successful in obtaining board-certification from the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) in clinical neuropsychology.

Clinical experience will consist of adult outpatient neurological cases including dementia, epilepsy, brain tumor/oncology, developmental syndromes, neurobehavioral disorders, multiple sclerosis and other degenerative conditions. Exposure to pediatrics may be available at MGH based on individual background and interest, but clinical training will be primarily adult-focused at both sites for this cycle. Training in cognitive rehabilitation is offered as an elective, primarily during the second-year rotation at BWH.

A required portion of the fellowship will be research activity through a proposed project or via participation with faculty in ongoing research projects. Didactic opportunities abound at both settings. The training experience is enriched by a highly collaborative teaching environment in which the fellow will work closely with neuropsychologists, behavioral neurologists, psychiatrists, and others with a special interest in brain and behavior. There are opportunities for teaching to supervise graduate practicum students and interns.

A competitive stipend ($69,300 Years 1 & 2) plus excellent benefits are offered. An academic appointment will be made as a Clinical Fellow at Harvard Medical School.
